South Northants Youth Engagement (SNYE)

We are working in partnership with the District and Town councils to develop youth provision across South Northants. They have recently provided grant funding for us to recruit staff who will support and deliver this youth provision. Support for our village communities is an important part of our plans and we are keen to set up a villages network and talk with local leaders.

Towcester Area Door to Door

Could you volunteer to help the elderly and vulnerable in our parish? If you have been volunteering during lockdown or are now working from home, are you able to spare some time to help out?


Towcester Area Door to Door urgently need to recruit additional volunteer drivers to help people in our community.


As we emerge from lockdown, the NHS is now offering a wider range of hospital and GP appointments, and dentists, opticians, podiatrists and other healthcare providers are back at work. We have seen a steady rise in the number of journeys requested and we expect this to continue, particularly when the Autumn flu vaccine programme begins. 

This year, more than ever, our elderly and vulnerable neighbours need the support of a friendly, affordable, door-to-door service for their medical appointments.


Drivers need to have access to a car, be available on a regular basis for a minimum of half a day a week and complete a DBS check.  Mileage is reimbursed at the HMRC rate and insurance premiums are not affected.  Journeys are agreed in accordance with weekly availability and can fit around the school run, working from home or part time employment.
